Foundations of The Creative Process
In this course, which is required for students planning a creative writing concentration and open to all who are interested, students explore the nature and significance of creative processes. Guest writers present their work and discuss the ways in which that work comes into being. Guests include writers in all genres and artists who use writing in socially significant ways. Students participate in a variety of exercises designed to develop voice, illuminate process, and create familiarity with a variety of formal possibilities. The final product of the course is a portfolio.
